I am neutral among all the fine Democrats contemplating a run for President. Truly.
In 2008, the Obama folks were all certain the DNC was in the tank for Clinton; the Clinton folks were all certain we were in the tank for Obama. Which suggested we did a pretty good job of remaining neutral. (It was actually easy, because both were such completely compelling choices. Even privately, in the voting booth, I was torn.)
That said, should Hillary win, she will enter the White House with an exceptional intellect; an extraordinary knowledge of the presidency; a track record of working across the aisle in the Senate; a deep knowledge of foreign affairs; working relationships with scores of her fellow world leaders; and policy positions that favor the 99%, while embracing science, diversity, and investment.
And as I read this profile of Robby Mook, 35, tapped to run her campaign, I’m thinking: you know what? She just might win.
Quote of the Day
Money is a singular thing. It ranks with love as man’s greatest source of joy. And with death as his greatest source of anxiety. Over all history it has oppressed nearly all people in one of two ways: either it has been abundant and very unreliable, or reliable and very scarce.~John Kenneth Galbraith, The Age of Uncertainty
